“It’s heard to believe that a little over a year ago we began the process of building our dream home! In looking back, we count our blessings every day that we went with Regional Homes (RH) for our custom-built home. Once upon a time…
- Donna & Jon
We were meeting with Chip and having conversations about our blueprints, house placement, heating systems, insulation, foundations, windows, electrical, flooring, & cabinetry. There were many decisions to be made, but with each decision Regional’s patience and expertise in home building allowed us to pick well. We learned so much from Regional Homes, and found our visits to the “options room” at the model, & to the kitchen and flooring places enjoyable.
We remember how genuine, patient and enthusiastic JoAnn had been with helping us narrow down our decisions about esthetics and upgrades. We had many questions, and every time, she always got back to us, as promised. We would look forward to visiting the model, knowing we would be greeted with good cheer, hospitality, and professionals who were genuine design partners interested in helping us “get it right.”
We really were impressed with Regional Homes well before any ground breaking. Although not really a regular builder’s concern, we faced potential conflicts about boundary lines with neighbors, who we had not yet met. Chip coordinated a neighbor’s meeting with the survey team. All concerns were out on the table, and any differences were dealt with quickly, saving us potential neighbor feuds down the road. Not long after, we shared costs of fencing and landscaping, and eventually getting invited to neighborhood events.
After breaking ground, we couldn’t believe how fast things went, and enjoyed watching our dream home become a reality, with every stage of the way. Inspections at each stage moved quickly. Regional Homes was aware in advance, of the new County stairway building codes, which lead to necessary changes. Even with the new designs, the construction schedule stayed on track. Once finished, Chip’s new staircase re-design was far better than imagined.
Although quality is an overused term, Regional Homes was a great advocate for quality workmanship. With the construction of our retaining wall, we noticed a slight leaning, and without saying anything, Chip had the sub contractor fix it until they got it right. The recurrent insistence of quality throughout the building process was evident, but with this situation, we felt a “peace of mind” that we would not deal with problems down the road.
After several months in our new home, hanging curtains, decorating, enjoying our new home, we were impressed to hear from Steve who wanted to coordinate the follow-up on outstanding issues. Our first thought was that there wasn’t much to report. We had a few minor follow up items, and as expected, everything was handled by John with ease, thoroughness, and care. In our decorating projects we had a few misplaced nail holes needing some filling. John even showed us the “right way” to patch them!
We will always appreciate all of your efforts, and continue to enjoy the fruits of your labors on a daily basis. We wish you all the happiness in life, and continuing success as Regional Homes.”
